Installing chef-client from rpm package


#1

Folks,

I’ve created binary package for centos to install chef-client. As part
of setup it starts chef-client. Configuration is created by separate
wrapper script, so runlist on 1st run is not empty. And now I’m
experiencing issues with cookbooks, that install packages, since you
can’t explicitely install rpm package from package scripts of another
rpm package due to locking issues.

Please let me know if there are good workarounds for this. I’m thinking
of delayed start for chef-client but I don’t like this approach.

Thanks,
Kirill.
